In Topic: Duratec 1.6 Spark Plug Gap

24 November 2015 - 01:47 PM

Hi I have just had my 1.6 Focus 2009 serviced by a Ford Main dealer. I had a look at what plugs they had fitted. They are FOMOCO CYFS-12VN4 set to 1.1mm. I had a look on Google and the only pages that come up are Polish. Seems odd. I originally had NGK fitted. I will see how they run.

In Topic: Patchy Dab/fm Radio

Hi. I have a Sony 6cd DAB radio fitted to my Focus 2-5 with the correct Ford Ariel's. My daily commute has signal drop out at exactly the same points on the journey. This is a problem with the transmission. If I lived in these areas I would not be happy. DAB in this country still has a way to go but investment seems to have stopped. 

In Topic: Dog Owners Which Dog Guard?

06 November 2015 - 07:00 PM

Hi I use the Halford Mesh dog guard in my Focus 2.5. Bent the lower edge to follow the contor of the back seat. I leave it fitted at all time as I can leave the parcel shelf fitted. It just clamps to the rear seat head rests. Easy to fit/remove if I need to drop the back seats.

In Topic: Got A Question About Tyres? Ask The Michelin Expert!

My !.6 ltr Petrol Ford Focus Mk 2.5 is fitted with Michelin Primacy 3 tyres. The recommended pressures for the 205/16/R16 are 30psi on the front and 33psi at the rear. I find this unusual as normally with the heavy engine it the front I would have though it to be the other way round. It handles well and the tyre wear seems normal. I would just welcome your comments.

Thank you
